3 Ways to wear a hair bow as an adult
Hair bow accessory barrette
A regular ponytail can get a little boring over time. It’s always fun to experiment with new ways you can make your pony stand out. One of the ways you can do this is with a hair bow. The hair bow accessory adds a romantic touch to the style. It’s basically like the dress of the hair world. As soon as you put it on, you look like you put way more effort into your look than you really did. Honestly, we love a style like that so much.
To achieve this look, brush all of your hair back into a low ponytail and secure with a hair tie. Next, clip your bow just above the hair tie so it cover it up. Pull a couple of pieces of hair out of the ponytail to frame your face then you’re all set; it really is that simple!
Hair bow headband
If one trend isn’t enough for you, try two! A bow headband is a great way to merge two accessories that are everywhere right now. Oh, and it also does an amazing job keeping your hair out of your face. We love a practical accessory!
To achieve this look, use Bed Head By TIGI Queen Beach Salt Infused Texture Spray. Spritz the product 3-4 times throughout your hair and scrunch with your hands to create more volume and texture. We love this product because it amps up flat hair without having to break out your curling iron. Next, you can either leave your hair like this and then put on your headband or, you can gather all of your hair into a low ponytail and the place your headband around it.
Unique bow accessory hair tie
When you want to add a romantic touch or a little something extra instead of your regular black hair tie, a hair with a bow on it is a great option! This is a really versatile option because it can be used with ponytails, half up styles, and braids.
Start this look by applying 1-2 pumps of The Good Stuff Frizz Control Oil from the midshaft of your hair down to the ends. Don’t forget to comb through your hair to distribute the product evenly. Next, brush all of your hair into a high ponytail on the top of your head, then secure the ponytail with your bow hair tie! Finish the look with Dove Style+Care Compressed Flexible Hold Hairspray. This hair spray will lock down and fly-aways and frizz while keeping your hair moveable.
